With social distancing in place and many in our area struggling with self-quarantines, our restaurants are struggling to stay afloat. Many of these restaurants are now offering expanded Takeout and Curbside Carryout in Venice. Let’s keep our community safe, healthy and strong by continuing to support our restaurants so they can stay open and still feel a sense of security by minimizing the risk of exposure to illness.
